I woke up one morning in November and I realized I love you
Its not your headlights in front, your tailpipe, or the skylight above you
Its the way you cling to the road when the wind tries to shove you
Id never go driving away and come home without you
The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road
Bummed is what you are when you go out to your car and its been towed

Lovely day for a trip to the ER.

I got downtown early, afoot, had some breakfast, then sat absorbing sunlight on a Main St. bench.

After a time I moved to the ASIP. Coffee/tea spot, sat in the sun-filled front window of the old Starbucks watching foot traffic and reading.

After another time, the world started spinning, vortexing to the right. I clung to the tabletop, sitting on a high stool.

I had the barista help me to a lower seat and called 911.

Nauseated, hurling into a wastebasket, the medics came and hauled me out to Mercy Med Center. This was elevenish. Didn't get to finish my $4 cold brew.

Nothing was found to be immediately wrong, but a number of unrelated things to talk with the doc about come Monday.

I left the ER and got a taxi about 9 pm. I'm feeling okay.

So, say no more, say no more. "Drive on."

I'm happy to see the pix caught your attention, boys.

Dingus, where oh where?



Bedtime.

Hey mouse. Take care. Maybe, good job on finding a barista to lay you down easy, but you should you be doing that? Glad you're seeking a doc`s blessings at least. Seriously, I've been kind of passing that way about one a week. If you need a ride to an appointment, or the bay area, please introduce me to a nice barista. Cheers.

Psilocyborg, I just had a listen to your contribution from yesterday.

After the Fall

I just had a really bad fall
And this time it was harder to get up than before
I shouted to the heavens and a vision appeared
I cried out "Can you help?", it replied "Not at all"

After the fall is over
You'll be on your own
After the fall is over

There'll be wrecks to clear in this war zone
There'll be much to clean and time to atone
But while it's dark you can shelter here
In the bleak midwinter when you're feeling the fear
Ah, but when the mist clears, the sun will shine again

A life's gotta have direction
After the deals are done
You gotta ask the question

Ask yourself why you go through it all
When morality kicks in, who will catch you when you fall
I'm a sinner waiting at the traveler's rest
Seeking refuge from the storm, and I'm a grateful guest
And a profit cries out in high platitudes
I smile and say, "Hey, I was just passing through"
And an angel cries, "Wait, we'll tell you when to move"
Even at the gates of Heaven I'll be waiting in a queue

Seems like I'm falling upwards
Into the great white blue
And all my imperfections

You can learn your lines and fabricate a show
But the way we come in, yeah, that's the way we're gonna go
We cheat and lie to conquer our fears
We can put on a smile just to cover up the tears
Ah, but when the mist clears, the sun will shine again

After the fall (after the fall is over)
There'll be a better day
After the fall is over

So I fell on my arse, now I'm feeling the pain
But the feeling will pass and so will the shame
The bigger the ego, the bigger the fall
When your reputation counts for nothing at all
Ah, but when the mist clears, the sun will shine again
I will greet you when the sun shines again

After the fall (after the fall is over)
There'll be a better day
After the fall is over

Holy smokes mouse, hope all is well.

And thank you for faithfully watching my videos. This music moves me like no other.

If we could see these many waves
That flow through clouds and sunken caves
She'd sense at least the words that sought her
On the wind and underwater

It took a long time for that film to get released

My ex#1 liked Janis' performances so much I bought her a copy

Did I mention she (excee) hung out with Hendrix (and especially Mitch) at Monterey

We were after all so much younger then

Cane and able and willin'



Been mirandized? Sure at least twice (that I remember)

But I do draw that line at getting my head stove in
